Surface Phenomena, Catalysis, Colloids

Surface layers, that is, the thin layers of a substance at the boundary of bodies, mediums, or phases, have a different excess free energy that forms the special features of the layer’s structure and composition. Research in this field focuses on manipulating surfaces or colloids and using them for a wide range of engineering applications.

Prof. Yoed Tsur's research group studies materials for sustainable energy applications using advanced methods developed within the group. They prepare models from the stage of producing the nanometric powder to a complete model, and perform electrical measurements on them, analyzed using software they developed.
Prof. Dario Dekel discovered his passion for research during his graduate degree studies. During Dario’s  MSc, his supervisor (Prof. Gidi Grader) gave him a research topic (and a thesis title) during the first week of the studies: Preparation of Superconducting Materials by Spray Pyrolysis Technique. He graduated with an outstanding thesis (and paper): “I remember […]
Prof. Gidi S. Grader and his research group study and develop ceramic materials with applications in the field of energy and produce “green” hydrogen with high efficiency. Prof. Grader recently received the Prime Minister’s Prize for Global Innovation in Smart Mobility and Alternative Fuels for Groundbreaking Research. While studying for his BSc degree in Chemistry […]
